Your wedding dress is perhaps the most precious garment you will ever own, so when it comes to cleaning we are dedicated to providing an outstanding service. We use delicate methods, particularly effective on sequins, beads and lace. All gowns are individually hand finished.
To preserve your wedding dress it is essential that you store it properly to prevent fading and damage. Our preservation boxes promote and preserve the longevity of the dress. These come in a range of sizes, are made from PH neutral board and tissue to provide a protective environment approved by textile experts. We can even supply handmade boxes.
Have the dress cleaned as soon as possible. This removes and food, drink or other stains which may oxidise, which may cause the stain to be harder to remove, potentially making them permanent.
We cannot work miracles, but we do endeavour to remove the stains as best as we can.
These are suitable for short term before the wedding, but they may allow in light and cause condensation to form. Both can fade and damage the dress and also cause mould.
We can usually clean your dress in 3-4 weeks.
Have the dress preserved in a wedding dress storage box and packed in white acid-free tissue as soon as it has been cleaned. This ensures the dress is preserved and increases it longevity.
DO NOT… Store in normal cardboard boxes or coloured tissue, as these can contain acids and dyes, which can discolour and damage the fabric of the dress.
Keep your dress box in a warm, dry spare room if possible.
DO NOT… Store the dress in the attic as leaking roofs or water tanks, general damp, insects birds or rodents can cause all kinds of damage.
Have the dress checked once a year for any damage due to damp, insects, etc. Checking and moving the dress prevents any creases from becoming too permanent.
